St. Paul’s Church was formed by an official act of the City Council of Key West. In a petition to the bishop of New York, the City council requested a priest be sent and the Parish of St. Paul’s be established.
In 1831, the council gave notice of a public meeting to establish an Episcopal Church and a committee was appointed.
St. Paul’s Church was formed by an official act of the City Council of Key West. In a petition to the bishop of New York, the City council requested a priest be sent and the Parish of St. Paul’s be established. The first rector was the Reverend Sanson K. Brunot, who arrived December 23, 1832. The first of four churches on this site was completed in 1839. Our rectory, built in 1857 is still standing but in need of repair. Learn more about the Historic Rectory and the proposed renovation.
In February of 2020, St. Paul's celebrated the 100th anniversary of our current church building, the 4th on the same site, the previous 3 having been destroyed by a hurricane, a fire, and another hurricane. Learn more about our history.
Each season, St. Paul's welcomes musicians who perform in the sanctuary, historic rectory and parish hall as part of our outreach mission to the Keys. Taking advantage of our downtown location, the church has become a much loved center for musical events. This year, between November 2019 and June 2020, we are hosting 24 performances for 6 organizations.
